LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- U.S. pop star Lady Gaga admits in a new Vanity Fair interview that she occasionally uses cocaine, but doesn't recommend that her fans try the drug.
"I won't lie; it's occasional," UsMagazine said the singer told Vanity Fair in an interview for its September issue. "And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year."
She added that she doesn't want her fans to "ever emulate that or be that way."
"I don't want my fans to think they have to be that way to be great," Lady Gaga said.
The 24-year-old recording star is known for her songs "Just Dance," "Paparazzi" and "Bad Romance."
